Lesley Lokko Book and Novel

Lesley Lokko - Author


Lesley Lokko was our Guest Editor in April 2011 - click here - to see the books that inspired her writing.

Lesley Lokko’s most recent novel, One Secret Summer, has just been released in paperback and her next, A Private Affair, is due out this summer. After spending seven years training to be an architect, she promptly threw in the towel and began writing fiction instead. Lesley now splits her time between London, Accra and Johannesburg, with the odd winter spent writing in cottage just outside Edinburgh. Her Scottish friends think she’s mad.

If you like Lesley Lokko you might also like to read books by Amelia Carr, Tilly Bagshawe and Michelle Paver.
